Excerpt: I use this product for everything: coding, movies, YouTube, gaming on PS4, and external monitor.I recommend this monitor to my friends all the time. No flickers, backlight issues, dead pixels, or anything bad.Really built to last. I will use this for a very long time.
Summary: Originally bought an asus pb278, but asus did a switcharoo on the panel mid production, so looked for another monitor that used the same PLS monitor. This one came up, so I decided to try it. Very glad I did! Great color, sharp, pleasant semi matte finish keeps reflections down, and graininess.
Summary: Tried to mount two monitors on dual monitor stand but plastic housing is so flimsy that it sags under its own weight around the VESA mount and allows the screen to tilt forward (i.e.downwards). Five cents of plastic would have made this an entirely different experience.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted a high end monitor that was in my price range and I'm glad I did. I can't get overly technical with this but there's a notable difference from the rather inexpensive model I was using before, it's even better than my discontinued samsung model.
Summary: I needed more surface area for Office - more pixels on a bigger display for lots of open files and browser windows. I'm a heavy user of Excel, Word and PowerPoint, plus social media and video playback. I thought hard about spending the extra $ for an IPS monitor. This AOC IPS monitor rocks.
Summary: Very solid monitor. Note that this is Quad Resolution (2560 x 1440), which is significantly higher than the cheaper 27" monitors you'll find in most electronics store showrooms. Ideal for designers, coders, and spreadsheet jockeys. For home use, a lower resolution monitor would be fine.
Backlight stopped working after 4 months. Repair requires shipping from Hawaii to New Jersey at my cost. Not worth it.

Summary: Display went from very bright and easy to see to dark and very dim after four months of use. Cannot adjust settings to make it bright enough to use. AOC requires that I send the unit from my home in Hawaii to New Jersey at my cost to process the warranty.
